Kongsberg Geospatial to Deploy I-SIM(r) ATM Modeling and Simulation at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University

June 15, 2017 – Ottawa, CA: Kongsberg Geospatial, an Ottawa-based developer of real-time, mission-critical, geospatial software technology announced today that Embry-Riddle
Aeronautical University will be deploying their I-SIM ATM (Air Traffic Management)
Modeling and Simulation software in their en-route and terminal air traffic control
training labs.
Located in Daytona Beach, Florida, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University is the
largest and oldest aviation-focused university in the world. The school offers more
than 80 degree programs, including aerospace engineering, aeronautical science, and
a bachelor’s degree in air traffic management. Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University
has been designated a Center of Excellence by the FAA (Federal Aviation Authority).
The I-SIM ATM modeling and simulation software has long been used by the FAA for
Human Factors Engineering as well as complex airspace design and analysis work. With
its high level of realism and ability to simulate real world en-route and terminal
environments, I-SIM will deliver realistic ERAM (en route) and STARS (terminal)
problems to students looking to enter the FAA workforce. Providing students with
high fidelity “control room” like environments will allow Embry-Riddle Aeronautical
University students to gain confidence by being exposed to FAA systems. With over
6000 controllers needed in the next 5 years, Embry Riddle students will be well
prepared for their careers.

Dr. Bill Coyne, Air Traffic Program Coordinator said that “the I-Sim ATM simulator
provides the most realistic opportunity for our students to experience what it’s
like to work traffic in an en route or terminal radar environment. When we were
presented with the opportunity to purchase a system that not only emulates
real-world air traffic control but provides an outstanding platform for research and
modeling in air traffic management, it was something we couldn’t turn down”.
The new simulation software was installed and began its use in January 2017.
“We’re very pleased to see our software deployed at Embry-Riddle,” said Kongsberg
Geospatial president Ranald McGillis, “The University is an FAA Center of
Excellence, and the world’s foremost aviation technology training institution. It’s
a mark of distinction to be selected by them provide the technology to help train
the next generation of air traffic controllers. ”
